ABOUT EASY MELODY:
Callie Mills never intended to return to New Orleans and the life she left behind more than a decade ago. There was no need to open old wounds when she had the life she’d worked hard for in Denver. But when she’s fired from her awesome job in Colorado and her father dies, she has no choice but to return home to run the derelict bar left to her in the heart of the French Quarter. Callie must not only face bad memories but turn The Odyssey into something she can be proud of.
And who better to help bring in crowds of people than Declan Boudreaux?
Declan is a sought-after musician who knows he’s good at what he does and loves doing it. Known to pack the house, he also loves women and doesn’t expect to be knocked back a step by the beautiful new owner of The Odyssey. Callie is sharp, gorgeous and funny, and makes him yearn for something he never has before… Commitment.
But when Callie’s able to turn the business around with renovations, making it one of the hottest bars in the Quarter, will she sell out and leave her past behind once and for all, or will Declan be able to convince her that’s she’s where she needed to be all along…in his arms.
EASY MELODY EXCERPT :
Here goes nothing.
It’s still early in the evening, but it’s not a typical busy night, and I’m hoping I’ll be able to get Callie alone, even if it’s just for a few moments so I can talk to her. I don’t want to wait until later tonight to walk her to her car.
I walk in and sigh in relief. It’s slow in The Odyssey, with just a few tables occupied, and a couple of guys at the bar. The roof is closed, which tells me it’s been mellow all day.
As I walk toward the bar, I see Callie at the far end talking to a tall suit-type who’s handing her flowers.
“Oh, Pete, you didn’t have to do that.” She’s smiling as she buries her nose in the blooms.
“Well, dinner out just hasn’t worked out, so I decided to come to you.”
Who the fuck is this?
“We’ve both been busy,” Callie says as she shifts her gaze and finds me standing not far behind Flower Boy. Her eyes widen and her cheeks pinken. I stand firm, cross my arms over my chest, and watch unapologetically.
“I know things ended between us a long time ago,” the dude continues, “but I’ve never forgotten you, Cal. Let me take you out, like old times.”
“Callie,” I say, my voice calm but firm. “Can I talk to you for a minute?”
“Adam can get you a drink. We’re having a conversation,” Pete says, obviously pissed at being interrupted.
I bet he’s been practicing his speech for a week.
“Now,” I say simply.
“I’ll be back,” she says to Pete, then walks around the bar and motions for me to follow her. As soon as we’re in her office, I close the door and move her against it, caging her in.
“Is he who you want, Callie?” I’m panting, adrenaline taking over. Callie’s blue eyes are wide and pinned to mine. She’s gripped on to my shirt over my ribs, holding on tightly. “Say he is, and I’ll leave right now.”
She blinks once, then again.
“That’s what I thought,” I plunge one hand into her soft hair, fist my hand in it and tilt her head back, and kiss her. Hard. She moans, long and deep, pulling me to her with those hands, and I’m lost in her. Our tongues explore each other, and then I nibble the corner of her mouth and kiss her softly. “I’m tired of trying to keep my hands off of you,” I murmur, my lips still against hers.
EASY MELODY REVIEW :

~ 5 Piece of the Puzzle Stars ~
Each time I read a Kristen Proby book, I fall more and more in love with her writing. Her books just put me into a happy place and I can’t help but have a huge smile on my face. Her books are literary works of art in my opinion.
Her stories and characters are so full of love and emotion, you can’t help but get drawn in. She writes with such feeling you can’t help but feel like you are a part of these books. What I love the most about her books is that they aren’t overloaded with excess drama. Yes she adds a little here and there just to keep the readers attention, but she knows how to balance all the elements of the story to make it a smooth read.
Easy Melody is the 3rd book in her Boudreaux Series and it was just as wonderful as the first two are. I absolutely love this Boudreaux Family. They have such warmth and compassion and really look out for each other. They are what I believe most families aspire to be in real life. This book was a sweet and sexy read with an amazing Hero and a sassy heroine. I can’t say for sure but I swear the books in this series are getting steamier and steamier as they are released 😉 Not that I am complaining!!! As with the other book in this series, this is fairly quick read, one you can finish in a day or less.
Easy Melody is the story of Declan Boureaux and Callie Mills. Callie is originally from New Orleans and was raised by a single dad after her mom dies when she is young. Her dad over time becomes an alcoholic, so when Callie is old enough she leaves New Orleans for Denver and starts her life over. 10 Years later she is forced to come back to New Orleans after her father passes away. He has left the family bar to her and she has to figure out what to do with it. While she is back in New Orleans, her boyfriend and boss Keith calls her and literally breaks up with her and fires her all in one phone call. So realizing she has nothing to go back to, Callie decides to stay in New Orleans and run the bar with her BFF Adam. This is where she meets Declan, because he is a musician who plays at the bar a couple times a week. Lets just say when Declan sees Callie for the first time he is smitten and will not take No for an answer. He is determined to get to know Callie, in every way her can. Now Declan is known as a player, so will Callie be able to tame his wild ways and make an honest man out of him?? You’ll just have to read the book to find out!!!
Again in this book we get to see all of the Boudreaux clan and we also get to meet some new characters. I love that all the characters overlap in the stories. Each of these books can be read as a stand alone, but to fully appreciate this family unit, you will want to read them in order. As like in the first two books, the epilogue in this book is a sneak peek to the next book in the series. Easy Kisses is going to be Charly and Simon’s story and I can’t wait to meet Simon 😉 Another aspect to this book that I truly loved was that she included a cameo from a few of the couples from her With Me in Seattle Series. I thought that was great!!!
So whether you are a fan of Kristen’s books or haven’t read any of them yet…don’t wait, pick up this book and read it now!!! You don’t want to miss reading about this amazing family and what is left to come for them.
And don’t forget to grab the first book in the Boudreaux Series!
